The engine update for the B MW 3-series mainly concerns the diesel -Aggregates in the models 325d and 320d, which now offer a little more power. The latest version of the three-liter in-line six-cylinder engine with common rail direct injection, which develops its maximum torque of 430 Nm at 1,750 rpm, is responsible for the power boost from 197 to 204 hp in the 325d. The 320d will generate 184 hp and 380 Nm in the future.

Most economical 3 series: the 320d Efficient Dynamics

The Bavarians are sending out the ultimate efficiency model from 2010 the 163 hp special model BMW 320d Efficient-Dynamics Edition will enter the race as a sedan with an average consumption of 4.1 liters per 100 kilometers and should not emit more than 109 grams of CO2.

The three-liter six-cylinder in the BMW 335i will in future be satisfied with just one turbocharger as in the BMW 5 Series GT. The performance data remain unchanged. With the BMW 318i, a new basic variant is available for both the Coupé and the Convertible. The two-liter four-cylinder with 143 hp accelerates the 3 Series Coupé to 100 km /h in 9.1 seconds, while the convertible takes 10.3 seconds. As with sedans and station wagons, the top speed is 210 km /h. All-wheel drive is available for five variants of the coupé. Starting this year, the entry-level version 316d with 115 hp, which is familiar from the sedan, is also available for the station wagon. All models in the 3 Series also meet the Euro 5 emissions standard.

Light facelift for 3 Series Convertible and Coupé

To the optical retouching of the new 3 Series Coupé - and convertible models include indicators with LED technology, bi-xenon headlights that curve slightly more downward and a front apron with horizontal struts. There are no tampering with the sheet metal; in return, the interior has been redesigned in all 3-series versions with window lifters that are easier to reach, new instrument graphics and a scaled-down rotary push button. The integration of mobile phones and external entertainment devices into the iDrive is also said to have been optimized with the facelift.
